Needless to say, this is a massive and free update to Blotter and it is available right now in the Mac App Store. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we have.

Update 1: It seems like a bug that only affects Snow Leopard (10.6.x) sneaked into the release. If you're using this, please hold off with your upgrade until we get a fix out. Please note that this does not affect Lion (10.7.x) users.
Update 2: We've found the issue that is causing issues with Snow Leopard and submitted an update to Apple. Unfortunately we cannot speed up their approval process.
Update 3: We've finally got Blotter 2.0.1 approved. It should address the Snow Leopard issue. We really apologize for this bug, but please understand that we submitted an update the very next day, it just took this long for Apple to approve it.
Update 4: Blotter 2.0.2 is finally out. It restores order in the (subscribed calendar) universe.
